no website, i work for a multitude of designers and they keep me busy, let me know what you need and i will put it down on paper for you and if you like we can work something out. I love Mid Century furniture, the stand you are looking at is inspired by George Nelson, The Nelson Bench to be exact. Yeah if you are interested PM me and i will work with you

High quality work on that stand! Nicely done. I'm absolutely green with envy for your manten stone. You must show pics before you start arranging! You'll be glad you got so much.

That custom stand is really nice looking and a refreshing change from the normal ADA style stands. I'm excited to see how a fully planted tank will look on it. Are you going to make holes in it for the filter and tubing (unless the holes are on the right side of the cabinet)?

Hehe I figured you were a big mid-century fan due to your Eames chairs.

Volatile, you noticed those chairs. Yes the holes for the filter will be on the right side, the hole for the co2 will be on the back left, I am looking for glass elbows so that the filter lines are as neat as possible, if I do not find glass, I'll make something. I'll start posting pictures on the process come Monday. I just finished making another stand for a 60p. I am also designing a new simple look based on simplicity, function and mid century elegance. 100% American design.

a search on ebay for Dazs and glass turns up some inexpensive glass bends for CO2, I ordered a couple and they are pretty good, I know one of the big names sell them too...

I think that you're practice has yielded great results. I like the final layout as well and I think that one more smaller stone on the right would do the trick. A lovely home and I think that a 180, if you or i ever get to that point, would be joy to have indeed. But the 120 really is an ideal size because there's so much room to work with! I love the stand too. Can I hire you to build me one, seriously!? I have like, zero DIY skills, lol. Anyway, can't wait to see this dream come to fruition. Subscribed.
